    Unique MVC MOTU Characters in MOTUC - NEWS!

    So, the previous news about unique MVC MOTU characters was pretty grim, but I asked Toyguru about them and he answered! Thanks for answering Toyguru! I'm SO happy he answered:

    Me:

    Hi TG.

    In February, we were told Mattel would be steering clear of MVC characters because the books have been out of print for a few years and are too hard for new fans to locate, but the mini-comics have been out of print for over 25 years and we're getting original characters from them. Specifically, the first mini-comic and the nearly impossible to find, final mini-comic (Preternia He-Man).

    My question is two-fold:

    1) Will we eventually get to see unique characters from MVC in MOTUC, like the mini-comic characters in MOTUC? Examples of some fan favourites: Human Faceless One, the 7 other members of the Coucil of Wisdom (we have He-Ra and know Eldor is possible), Aquarus (King of his race, Mer-man's arch-enemy), Stratos and Delora's parents, Illumina and her cat and the Demon inside the Shard of Darkness (basically He-Man as a winged demon on fire).

    2) Are variations of mainstream characters seen in MVC comics possibilities? Examples: Little girl Teela, young Stratos and Delora (who could share MYP style Teela and Adam bucks, if they're made), young King Hiss head, baby Evil-Lyn (could use the same sculpt is a baby Adam and Adora are made), etc
    (and I meant He-Ro...heh. ):

    Toyguru:

    We have rights to all of these figures, but no plans right now for them in the line in the immediate future.
    http://forums.mattycollector.com/eve...6&r=8341055346

    So, nothing in the immediate future. That's cool, but they CAN make them!

    Also...that means they can make Illumina and her cat! She was one of the examples I gave. Come on 2014!

    What do you guys think of the news?

    That's good news! I don't think we'll have to worry about running out of characters anytime soon, I really hope they start including more from NA and PoP as well. They should have plenty to choose from and hopefully we get to see some MVC characters/variations show up sooner rather than later!

    I agree with Snake Hunter. In my opinion, the only way these characters will be made is if in 2016 the line is still so popular Mattel has to continue making figures that are obscure and unknown just to fulfill popular demand and I just don't see that happening.

    Well, before I believe we were told they "wouldn't be in the line." Now, it's "nothing in the immediate future." We've heard the second line for figures like Ram-Man. So, I do feel like this is fantastic news! We COULD see someone like Illumina in 2014.

    Agreed on all points!

    Darkspecter, maybe you could start a poll asking who is interested or not in the characters introduced in the MVC comics (new characters or variations)

    I would be very interested... I hope many fans are also.

    Interesting news.
    For sure this is a change.
    Not that there are so many new characters in our comic, I think they most popular is still Illumina (and I like the made up names for the others ).

    Thanks. Hee hee.

    There are actually quite a few unique characters in the MVC comics. I started a thread about it a long while ago here:

    Anyone interested in seeing all the characters can check them out in my albums:

    I don't really think this is news. I mean, hasn't the answer always been that yes they can use the MVC characters, but that they have no desire to do so?

    Not exactly.
    This is slightly different.

    Wow, that's AWESOME Emil! I think it's interesting how Slushhead's head looks like an alien from the movie "Mars Attacks!"

    Neat to see how PoP and NA might have been in 200X.

    Hopefully this means we can get some unique characters from MVC, it would be awesome.

    I am curious about something though. I noticed in Darkspectors album that the Ancients are listed, I've always wanted the ancients but have been more familiar with the three that appeared in the mini comic The Ultimate Battleground, I'm assuming these ancients are different since there are more than three like in the mini.

    These are different aren't they? I'm too lazy to look.

    Even though they said they still have no plans, this still sounds somewhat positive and hopeful.
    So while it sounds like there is currently nothing in the works, it still made my morning!
    Doesn't hurt to keep a good thought, right?

    Wow Emiliano thanks for sharing those with us. I really love the Extendar, in fact thats now my official 200x Extendar! I don't suppose you want to give any details on how he was going to be introduced?
    The Flip Shot is also very cool! I'm not sure about the Slush Head though, a little Mars Attacks like Darkspecter said. Think the Alien council member would look better in red then green, like Zodak.
    Also with Thunder Punch He-Man you managed to make what I always thought was lame armour look very cool!
    How sweet would it be if they used your young Hordak for a Hec-Tor Kur figure!

    Dances for joy! Dances for joy!

    Tallstar, I need a celebration gif!

    This is a very big change from the "no, we won't make them, you know why, now write 'I will not ask for mvc characters again and I am very sorry sir and I deserve a stoning' on the blackboard 100 times!" vibe we were hearing before (okay, maybe I exaggerate a tad). Illumina can be made, and there was no hint of 'won't be made' this time. Good! We love you, Toyguru, we'll put your kids through college if you let us!

    And I love those sketches, Emiliano!!

    Isn't Hawk Stratos' sister? Delora his wife? Or am I way off here...?
    Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti

    It depends on what canon you follow. In the minicomics, Delora was Stratos' (human) wife. In Filmation, Delora was an avionian and Stratos' sister and Hawk/Hawke was an unrelated avionian from another episode.

    In MYP Hawk/Hawke was Stratos' sister (never spoken of on-screen but I think it was confirmed somewhere) and Delora didn't exist.

    That's pretty much what I thought-I knew Hawk was his sister in MVC/MYP, but Darkspecter made me doubt myself...

    TG said not anytime soon, so I'm having a realistic hope.

    I messed up in my question. She is Hawk in that book and the MYP series. In the 80's his wife AND sister were named Delora, but we never saw them together.
